Community Benefits

Caring for our Community is our Passion

At Ingalls, we're not satisfied to simply provide patient care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our dedicated, passionate employees, physicians and volunteers regularly reach outside the walls of our Hospital and Family Care Centers to educate and offer vital medical care to thousands of people in the communities we serve.

These Community Benefits are designed to prevent illness and improve health and well-being. Ingalls provides invaluable outreach services to thousands of men, women and children throughout our service area.

Specifically, Ingalls hosts more than 200 free community screenings, educational programs and health fairs annually, touching the lives of nearly 50,000 individuals. These include free or discounted mammograms, prostate screenings, and free or deeply discounted children's physicals and immunizations.

Through our partnership with the Cancer Support Center in Mokena, we reach patients and families through health lectures, counseling, support groups and screenings. And, in addition to our ongoing presence with the Homewood-Flossmoor Park District for cardiac and pulmonary rehab and wellness programs, Ingalls is the exclusive partner with the Tinley Park Park District, reaching out to southwest area residents with programs and screenings – many of which are offered at no charge.

Ingalls Southland Coalition to Conquer Breast Cancer sponsors a forum to heighten breast cancer awareness, early detection and prevention, especially among African-American women who are at increased risk of dying from this disease.

Our employees, physicians and volunteers continue to show their support and generosity for these and many other fundraisers throughout the year. In fact, Ingalls colleagues help bring holiday joy through food and toy donations to 500 area families each year.

Through these and dozens of other outreach activities, Ingalls strives to meet the region's most pressing health care needs – and be a good neighbor.
